So I was just down in Texas for work.
First off, I have an awesome job. I get to travel and meet a bunch of people. Plus, my coworkers are amazing people.
Anyways, the first night we got there, we rented out ACL Moody Theater for our reception. If you don’t know what Moody Theater is ( so help me if you don’t), it’s one of the most famous theater where they record live music shows. Recently they just moved the theater right to downtown area where we were staying.
That’s besides the point, it was amazing. There were pictures everywhere of people that performed there and the theater itself was just breathtaking. That’s not even the best part. ACL the festival unfortunately was rained out, but the headliner for Sunday ,Atoms for Peace, played at Moody Theater that night. We were able to see a headlining act of ACL the festival! It was amazing and they played an amazing show!!
Long story short: Austin is awesome!
I love Nashville, I always have. My senior year of college, I went there on my spring break to hand out my resume… yeah I was a little over ambitious.
Since Nashville, I’ve always kept that thought in my mind of wanting to move down south . Where it is warm and has good music. But my mind set has changed since I went to Austin. Austin is such a cool city when it comes to music. However, I was pretty disappointed by 6th street ( but I did go during the middle of the week). But you would think for a major city, 6th street would always be happening right?
Regardless of 6th street, Austin has so much to offer when it comes to the venues and the culture of the city . Most of the cities’ venues are these little run down places ,but they truly have a lot to offer. The best part about it is, the audience loves the music. So everyone is so into it. I love it.
And of course, ACL ( Austin City Limits) is one of the coolest venues I’ve ever seen. If you ever get the chance, go to Austin .
